Timemachine fails to start after reboot and, probably, stops by itself after a couple of weeks
I have installed Amahi Time Machine, it has been working fine for a year(at least I hope so) :D. Some time ago i discovered that it didn't work. I found out that netatalk had stopped. I started Netatalk manually and everything is fine for a couple of weeks when it stops again.
If I reboot my HDA it does't start. I've been searching through some scripts but I can't find out how timemachine starts. I'm considering to try uninstall/install "timemachine" and hope it will work :D (Amahi TM doesn't show in the finder of my mac)
From the terminal line after reboot of HDA with status, start and status of netatalk:
[root@home ~]# systemctl status netatalk ● netatalk.service - File and Printer sharing for Macintosh clients Loaded: loaded (/usr/lib/systemd/system/netatalk.service; disabled) Active: inactive (dead) [root@home ~]# systemctl start netatalk [root@home ~]# systemctl status netatalk ● netatalk.service - File and Printer sharing for Macintosh clients Loaded: loaded (/usr/lib/systemd/system/netatalk.service; disabled) Active: active (exited) since Tue 2016-07-12 11:01:27 CEST; 3s ago Process: 1555 ExecStart=/bin/sh -c exec /usr/libexec/netatalk/netatalk.sh (code=exited, status=0/SUCCESS) Main PID: 1555 (code=exited, status=0/SUCCESS) CGroup: /system.slice/netatalk.service ├─1561 /usr/sbin/cnid_metad -l log_note └─1564 /usr/sbin/afpd -U uams_dhx.so,uams_dhx2.so -g nobody -c 20 ...

Any idea to solution?

By the way, I notice the service is disabled, somehow, which may be why it stops sometimes (e.g. on reboots or if it ever crashed). Amahi never disables a service without user intervention, however.
In any case, try this to re-enable the service:
systemctl enable netatalk
